IPSE reacts to Prime Minister’s speech
IPSE has responded to the speech made by Prime Minister Theresa May at the Conservative Party Conference today (5 October).
In reaction to the speech, Simon McVicker, IPSE Director of Policy said:
“The Prime Minister set out an agenda for Britain to be bold and confident on the global stage. Businesses across the UK will welcome her clear message on creating infrastructure fit for a modern economy. Independent professionals will be crucial to meeting these aspirations.
“Mrs May rightly stressed the fact that too many businesses don’t have good enough broadband. Our economy is now digital and every business, regardless of size or location, must be able to get online reliably to get ahead.
“The Prime Minister’s review into ‘modern employment' represents a golden opportunity to put forward measures to support people working for themselves, such as making maternity pay fairer for the self-employed.”Productivity, Policy, Digital
